That's exactly the sound mine is making - scrape, bang, scrape bang. I have a post where I pulled the front cover and turned on the machine. Below the tub where the motor sits, it looks almost like its missing some bolts but it isn't. The barrel moves back and forth as a normal function, but mine leans forward and the metal "housing" where the motor sits scrapes the bottom of the machine like some kind of suspension or springs are not holding it up. If I hold the tub back so it doesn't scrape it is fine, but I haven't found out which part is the problem. Did you have any luck?

More likely there is a bra wire caught between the inner drum and outer tub, possibly wrapping itself around the element in the bottom.

My washing machine has started making a terrible noise.

If your washing machine has started making a terrible noise, there could be several reasons for this. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can take to identify and resolve the issue:
  1. Check for objects in the drum: Sometimes, objects such as coins, buttons, or zippers can get caught in the drum and cause a noise. Turn off the machine and check the drum for any foreign objects. If you find any, remove them carefully.
  2. Balance the load: If the machine is making a loud banging noise, it may be due to an unbalanced load. Open the machine and redistribute the clothes evenly.
  3. Check the drum bearings: The drum bearings are responsible for allowing the drum to rotate smoothly. If they are worn or damaged, they can cause a loud grinding or scraping noise. To check the bearings, rotate the drum by hand. If it feels stiff or makes a grinding noise, the bearings may need to be replaced.
  4. Inspect the drive belt: If the drive belt is loose or damaged, it can cause a squeaking or rattling noise. Turn off the machine and check the belt for signs of wear or damage. If the belt needs to be replaced, consult your user manual for instructions.
  5. Contact a professional: If you are unsure of what is causing the noise or if none of the above solutions work, it may be necessary to contact a professional technician. They can diagnose the issue and recommend the appropriate course of action.
Note: Before attempting any maintenance or repair work on your washing machine, be sure to unplug it from the power source and read the user manual thoroughly. Also, follow any safety precautions recommended by the manufacturer.

Washer does not agitate or spin. makes loud noise when it's on:filling, trying to agitate or spin and emptying.

Possible that the INLET valve is also making noise due to faulty coil, check , confirm by disconnecting the valve.

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

My washing machine makes a very loud banging noise at the start and end of the spin cycle and there is a scraping sound throughout the cycle as though there is metal in the drum. What could be causing...

If you have an older machine it is the un-even load distribution in the wash tub. The wash is not evenly distributed in the wash tub. The wash tub don't spin evenly and wobble instead.

The drum is moving front to back and making terrible noise

The retaining nut/bolt for the drum has come loose. Remove the back cover and check the drum axle and attachments.
